Virushka’s Sweet Gesture For Players On Flight Impresses Michael Vaughan And Twitter

Skipper Virat Kohli and his boys have given us a lot to be proud, as India clinched their first win in Australia after a decade. That was one hell of a close call, Ravi Shastri can tell you exactly how close, but we did it! We’re barely done celebrating this 31-run win over the host team in the test at Adelaide. And already the excitement for the next one in Perth has begun!

For Kohli, there’s another reason to celebrate! It’s his and wife Anushka Sharma’s first wedding anniversary! One year since Virushka gave us wedding goals!

Anushka has been in the Land Down Under these past few days leading up to their anniversary, and cheering on her hubby and the team.

Today, Virat, Anushka and the rest of the team jetsetted to Perth for the next test.

Former English captain Michael Vaughan, who was on the same flight, shared a nice gesture from Virushka that he witnessed on the flight.

Turns out, Virushka gave up their Business Class seats so Indian pacers could be seated in them instead, and be more well rested in time for the Perth test.

Vaughan’s tweet got much love from cricket fans, who thought the gesture was befitting a captain.

Even Aussie spinner Brad Hogg tweeted about it!

Leaderon waali baat!

This not-so-subtle play on words!

Sweet, no?

That reminds me, did you check out the beautiful unseen pictures and video that Virushka shared from their wedding? The captions are just <3 !

Kar di na skipper waali baat!

Some fans also pointed out how this gesture was actually something M S Dhoni had done back during the 2015 World Cup!

They were glad Kohli was carrying forward Mahi’s legacy!

However, many from the lot, while appreciating the gesture by Kohli and Anushka, couldn’t help but wonder why they had to do this in the first place.

Why weren’t there enough Business Class seats for the entire team?

Yo wassup with that BCCI?

One of the explanations that were offered seemed to make sense. Often domestic flights don’t have enough Business Class seats. It’s probably the case here as well, and would’ve been back in 2015 when Dhoni had to do it too.

A few peeps went ahead and asked BCCI to tie up with an airline and have a charter plane for our Men in Blue. And let’s just say, that’s a WIP!
